Caffienated Randomness: Bible Verses

Since I do not have an i pod, I'm going to ramble on my own tangent today.

A while ago at my weekly mom's group, our leader (the great and wonderful, Mabel) asked us what our favourite bible verses were. I immediately started giggling. Not that this is a funny subject. There are some very serious bible verses. But sometimes you come across a bible verse that makes you giggle. The one that makes me laugh, as well as my evil twin, (see my other blog Cooking With the Evil Twins) is Acts 2:15

These men are not drunk, as you suppose. It's only nine in the morning! (NIV)

I know in the context that this verse is talking about pentacost, when the Holy Spirit came upon the disciples and the outcome was that 3000 came to our Lord. However, Debbie and I always get a kick out of the fact that one cannot be drunk at 9 am , however, any other time would be ok. Sometimes, when we are talking and Debbie's watch lets us know what time it is, if it is 9: o'clock we will each call out this verse.

Now I know I can't be the only one with a favourite quirky verse. In fact at our mom's group one of the moms had a verse about watching the boys! Can't remember what verse that was. Wish I could remember.

What's your favourite quirky verse?

In high school we were on a weekend retreat for youth, and my pastor had us all writing encouragement cards for one another, with a verse included. One of my guy friends found this verse and thought it suited me perfectly, given my "status" in the group:

Psalm 56:1
Be merciful to me, O God, for men hotly pursue me...

I sure would liked to have known which men they were! :P
